This paper selected typical AIS data received by Yagi and Omni antennas at the same time in specific waters, uses grid and AIS data recovery technology, establishes the AIS signal coverage model, analyzes signal reception rate of Yagi antenna and Omni antenna of AIS base station, and verified the superiority of Yagi antenna in AIS signal reception rate.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.10.02.03}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Automatic Identification System (AIS), AIS Data, AIS Signal, Yagi Antenna, Omni Antenna, Directional Antenna, AIS Signal Reception Rate, VHF Technology} }
